Three teens suspected of Pasadena home burglary

PASADENA — Three Pasadena teens are accused of a residential break-in after they were captured fleeing from a Mentone Avenue home with stolen electronics, jewelry and cash, authorities said.
A resident of the 1900 block of Mentone Avenue called police just after 4:15 p.m. Friday to report seeing three teenagers jumping a fence into a neighbor’s backyard, Pasadena police Lt. Jason Clawson said.
“The helicopter was almost immediately on-scene,” he said. “(Officers) observed the suspects running from the location.”
Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Altadena Station who were nearby spotted the three suspects and detained them, the lieutenant said.
“Pasadena officers responded to victim residence and found a (back) door had been forced open,” Clawson said. “The three suspect in possession of stolen property from victim’s home.”
The three teens, whose names were not released due to their ages, were booked on suspicion of residential burglary, he said.
